8021 Aluminum Foil Production Process

Foil production involves multiple steps to transform aluminum ingots into thin, versatile foils commonly used in packaging, culinary and various industrial applications. Specifically, the production of 8021 aluminum foil usually follows the following steps:

  1. Aluminum Alloy Preparation : The process begins with selecting the appropriate aluminum alloy. The control ingredients are precise.
  2. Melting and Casting : Aluminum ingots of the chosen alloy are melted in a furnace. Once the aluminum reaches the desired temperature, it is cast into large slabs called billets or ingots. These slabs are then rolled into thinner sheets. The rolling process reduces aluminum thickness and increases length.
  3. Cold Rolling : Hot rolled aluminum sheet goes through a series of cold rolling operations, which involves passing the sheet through a rolling mill multiple times. This gradually reduces the thickness of the aluminum sheet and increases its tensile strength.
  4. Annealing : Annealing is a critical step in the process. It involves heating aluminum sheets to a specific temperature and then allowing them to cool slowly. Annealing helps soften the aluminum, making it more ductile and easier to work with in subsequent steps.
  5. Lubrication and Rolling : After annealing, the aluminum sheet is lubricated to reduce friction during rolling. They are then passed through additional rolling mills to further reduce thickness and improve surface finish.
  6. Final Annealing : Another annealing process can be performed to further improve the properties of the material. This can include adjusting the thickness and temperature of the foil.
  7. Slitting and Cutting : Aluminum sheet is cut into smaller rolls of the desired width, which can vary depending on the application.
  8. Quality Control : Throughout the production process, quality control measures are taken to ensure that the foil meets thickness, strength and other performance requirements.
  9. Packaging and Distribution : Rolled into large rolls or packed into individual rolls or sheets according to customer requirements.

NO6. Thermal Conductivity

8021 Aluminum Foil: 8021 aluminum foil has good thermal conductivity, making it suitable for certain applications where heat transfer is a concern. However, its primary use is not for cooking or heat transfer applications.

8011 Aluminum Foil: Known for its good thermal conductivity, 8011 aluminum foil is often used in culinary applications, such as packaging food and baking, where heat transfer is important.

NO7. Applications

8021 aluminum foil is commonly used in blister packaging in the pharmaceutical industry, where its barrier properties and durability are critical.

It is also used in flexible packaging in the food industry due to its excellent moisture resistance.

8011 aluminum foil is commonly used in household applications including food packaging, food containers and kitchen foil.

It is also used in certain types of packaging in the pharmaceutical industry.

To sum up, although both 8021 and 8011 aluminum foils have their unique properties and applications, the choice between them depends on the specific requirements of the application.

8021 foil is often chosen for applications requiring higher strength and barrier properties, such as pharmaceutical blister packaging.

8011 foil is favored for its softness and flexibility, making it suitable for domestic and culinary applications.
